Re: How does the Pentax K-01 rate for looks, in your opinion?
I'm far more interested in how it handles and how it performs than in how it looks. This camera is not suitable for me on the grounds of handling, therefore its appearance is moot. But I wouldn't want to carry something that looks like a refugee from a baby's toy box, whatever its performance was like and however well it handled.
Cars should be painted colours which makes them easy to see but frequently aren't. Cameras do not need to be easy to see and should therefore be subdued in visual appearance.
If you're not living on the edge, you're wasting space
